PARIS (AFP) - Levels of arsenic in rice formula for babies are worryingly high, according to an investigation published Wednesday into products widely sold in stores.
Scientists voiced their concern after testing 17 samples of three common brands of baby rice.
They said the results exposed a bad loophole in safety regulations in the European Union (EU) and the United States, too.
The arsenic they tested for was inorganic, meaning that it had no carbon content and thus most likely came from a geological source.
